Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody director Dexter Fletcher is circling the upcoming Sherlock Holmes sequel.
The actor-turned-filmmaker is in talks to take over the franchise from Guy Ritchie, who directed Dexter in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law are both expected to reprise their roles as Holmes and Dr. Watson for the third movie, which will be based on screenwriter Chris Brancato’s screenplay.
According to Deadline, the two previous Sherlock Holmes movies, released in 2009 and 2011, have made over $1 billion at the global box office.
